Movie Review: Captain Marvel

Article By: Alice-Ginevra Micheli   While there have been plenty of strong female characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, none have helmed their own film. They’ve all been either supporting characters in someone else’s origin tale, or part of the crew in a team-up showcase. With Captain Marvel, this has finally become

Movie Review: Us

Article by: J.C. De Leon     Before 2017, Jordan Peele was someone that you would rightly associate with comedic genius. He does an amazing Barack Obama impersonation and when partnered with Keegan Michael-Key, no one could doubt the potential of any of their joint projects. When word came round that Jordan Peele

Movie Review: Bohemian Rhapsody

Article By: Alice-Ginevra Micheli   It’s no surprise that trying to capture all that Queen represents into a two and a half hour film would cause almost more drama behind the scenes than would ever make it on screen.

While they might be commendable in the roles they’ve played, who’s to say that their talents extend to a much more demanding and, arguably, important role? These were some thoughts that

Movie Review: Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Article by: Anthony Florez   At the Alamo Drafthouse's showing of Mission: Impossible - Fallout, I made sure to order a solid microbrew before the film started, something with a lot of kick and a high alcohol percentage. Once we were underway, I put up an order card to make sure another

Blu-Ray Review: Molly’s Game

Despite its popularity, poker hasn’t been the most common topic of movies, and films that featured it aren’t known for their box office success. For instance, titles like Deal (2008) and The Grand (2007) had at best, a lukewarm reception in cinemas. Runner Runner (2013) fared relatively better in terms
